Is there a way to show par times in Heretic?

Using MAPINFO, I've set the par times for a heretic project, but they don't show up (in zdoom or GZDoom)

 

Do I need to add an intermission section to my MAPINFO lump, and if so - what do I need to include in order to display par times?

 

Thanks

It doesn't usually display par times, no. Which is why I was wondering how to do it :)

Surely being a doom derivative there is some way to do it, my problem is I don't fully understand how to make the Intermission definitions in MAPINFO do my bidding....

Looking through the LANGUAGE lump, I come across this under the heretic language stuff:

 

// Raven intermission

TXT_IMKILLS = "KILLS";

TXT_IMITEMS = "ITEMS";

TXT_IMSECRETS = "SECRETS";

TXT_IMTIME = "TIME";

 

And I can change the name of one of these to say "par", and it displays at the end of the map, but can I add a par time as an extra?

 

Another strange thing about heretic is that it displays the time taken on the map twice - as if it's replacing the par time with the time taken.

 

I've searched for what references the TXT_IMTIME or suchlike language sections but they aren't referenced in any of the MAPINFO/gameinfo heretic or common files.

 

I can't seem to find the part where regular doom defines the par time being displayed either...
